The Beast from the East continues to ravage the racing programme. We will repeat yesterday’s Lingfield only policy in the hope of action, trying to improve on the two-winner marginal gain.
The Daily Yankee:
Emenem (1500 Lingfield), 11/4: Got to love horse racing, its the only sport that can bring Abe Lincoln and Emenem into direct conflict. Honest Abe is anything but, and although winning last time, has dropped in the ratings as that was so unimpressive. Tongue-tie, cheek-pieces and Ryan Moore may not be enough over this longer trip. We trust Emenem to have this rapped (?) up. Proven over the conditions, and flexible tactically he can confirm December superiority over Kyllachy Gala.
Zest (1530 Lingfield), 15/8: Let the handicappers do the work in this conditions race. They have Zest fractionally ahead, add in her good course form and the turn around in the weights with the two that beat her last time and she should gain her revenge. She could get a neat tactical ride from the front from jockey Muscatt.
Ravenous (1600 Lingfield), 7/1: Market leaders Smiley Bagel and Betsalottie step up to this class 5 event both with lifetime 0 from 9 records when stepped above class 6. That suggest value in Attain and Ravenous who fought out a finish here a few weeks ago. Attain got the better that day, but the weight change may allow Ravenous to turn that around and he looks good value.
Ravenhoe (1630 Lingfield), 9/4: This apprentice event features a fair bit of inexperience in the saddle. Oliver Stammers gets a 5lb claim, but that belies his recent experience, in particular he has ridden Ravenhoe on his last 3 runs finishing 124. Flexible tactically, he could easily make all in this field and trainer Mark Johnston is renowned for horses who keep finding more and are hard to pass and hard to handicap.
